Fits

Initially I bought the 32F, which at first I loved and thought was very comfortable. But the longer I wore it the more I wanted to rip it off; like it was both squishing me flat and the wires were pushing in too hard.

* Just as a reminder, the cups are full coverage & definitely firm. Support comes collectively from all parts of the bra: the firm band (has silicone on the top of the back band), the firm wires, the tall gore, the cups and the restricted stretch straps (if used). It DOES NOT slide down when used as a strapless! The shape is projected & forward round with a very slight pointedness (but not a lot center-fullness). Since the gore is tall, it will interfere with a close-set or center-full shape. But like I said, the gore provides support too.
* Personally, on me the gore "tries" to sit on my sternum, but doesn't quite make it. Hence, it flattens me out in the center and causes just a little quadding (but not enough to notice when wearing).
* One complaint about the bra is the location of the front straps. There are two positions to choose from, in both front and back. The back ones are fine, but the front ones, even the ones closer to center are still hitting my armpits. So I added a third position, as you can see in the pictures. I couldn't find grosgrain ribbon to match the original, so I used bias tape instead. I "stitched in the ditch" to conceal the stitching, just as the original. The new loops do not show from the front and now it's much more comfortable when I want to use the straps.
* A second complaint is the length of the panel for the hooks & eyes. When worn on the loosest set of hooks, there is barely enough fabric to cover the hooks. So they will rub into you if you're not careful about making sure that flap of material is laying completely flat.
